The SST Guide is a comprehensive open source tutorial for building and deploying full-stack apps using Serverless and React on AWS.
We are going to create a note taking app from scratch using React.js, AWS Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, and Cognito.
It is a single-page React app powered by a serverless CRUD API. We also cover how add user authentication and handle file uploads.
The entire guide is hosted on GitHub and we use Discourse for our comments. With the help of the community we add more detail to the guide and keep it up to date.
